For Queer/LGBTI Zines visit the Queer Zine Archive Project
"The mission of the Queer Zine Archive Project (QZAP) is to establish a "living history" archive of past and present queer zines and to encourage current and emerging zine publishers to continue to create. In curating such a unique aspect of culture, we value a collectivist approach that respects the diversity of experiences that fall under the heading "queer."

"I think it’s important to destroy “big” notions like woman, homosexual…
Things are never that simple. When they’re reduced to
black-white, male-female categories, there’s an ulterior motive, a binary-reductionist operation meant to subjugate them. For example, you cannot qualify a love univocally. Love in Proust is never specifically homosexual. It always has a shizoid, paranoid component, a becoming-plant, a becoming-woman, a becoming-music."
"We can no longer allow others to repress our fucking, control our shit, our
saliva, our energies, all in conformity with the prescription of the law and its
carefully-defined little transgressions. We want to see frigid, imprisoned, mortified
bodies explode to bits, even if capitalism continues to demand that they be
kept in check at the expense of our living bodies."
"Ultimately, we see the events of this year’s Camp Trans as yet another failure of identity politics and its correlative form, the Community. In the events of this year’s Camp Trans, we once again see community used as an apparatus used to recuperate the potentiality of radical struggle."
